Get Targeted Information Without Committing to a Full Battery


As your caseload increases, you need to stay connected to clients who aren’t able to visit your office in person. ChecKIT is a library of common mental health checklists and screeners that can be digitally administered and scored to help detect early signs of issues and monitor progress.


Features and benefits

  • Checklists provide a data-based, objective source of information to benefit your treatment plan; more frequent monitoring helps you identify which clients may need follow-up sooner.
  • Administration and scoring are bundled and sold in packages of 5 that can be used to purchase any test in the ChecKIT library, saving you time spent gathering checklists from several websites.
  • No special qualifications are required to purchase or administer; all ChecKIT tests are self-report measures.
  • Easily email HIPAA-compliant administration links to your clients.
  • The score report includes results with interpretive text that you can use to write a treatment plan.
  • Data can be exported to facilitate research.

Once your client completes a checklist, the data are saved in PARiConnect, allowing you to view results and compare responses immediately. Furthermore, each ChecKIT test offers a complimentary technical paper that explains the development behind the measure.
